Logged into IRC this morning and to my surprise there was some interesting chatter going on.
It seems that MrGuy has gotten as far as booting HoneyComb on the Adam. In the source post he has made his progress available for other devs to work on.
Although at this time, it seems to only work while holding your Adam upside down...
NOTE: In order to use this, you must make sure you use the utmost delicate hand gestures when touching your screen, as seen in the video.
***05/05/2011 11:24 [-04:00 GMT] PROGRESS: DJ_Steve aka StephenH in collaboration with MrGuy, has made progress in figuring out how to stop the Force Close. There seem to be some issues with the touch screen at this time..
14:03 -04:00 GMT ADD: roebeet's quick to get this on the GTAB
Tremendous progress was made this morning and is being made as you read this.
It's exciting news and thought I would share it with a sister tablet.
HoneyComb is booting on the Notion Ink Adam and now it's on the GTAB as well.
FRESH TODAY 9th May 2011 11:30AM EDT

No. You can be excited and optimistic. I think its a moral victory at this point but it'll spark hope again to some. But to others, they won't see it as nothing but a makeshift ROM with no value because its not the real thing. As a fan of modders and devs, I can feel excited for them because its a good accomplishment.
